    These are from my first order and I just received them today. I must say the construction is excellent and the measurements were taken perfectly from the sample pants and shirt I sent in.

    I really couldn't be happier, and the customer service from Theresa and others is very professional. Plotting out my next order already.

    Just got tipped off to luxire...what's the consensus from sf members on fabric quality? I've been using Thomas Mason Silver and/or Acorn. The only thing holding me back from ordering right now is the lack of explicit call outs on the fabrics and some trepidation at quality given the competitive pricing.

    EDIT: went back and read some more...looks like everyone agrees fabrics are good, just not named. For $100 or so probably just worth trying.

    This may be a more general question, but I'm posting it here since I'm thinking about ordering an MTM shirt from Luxire. To specify the sizing of the shirt, I plan to send in my best-fitting shirt and tweak the measurements slightly.

    Here's my predicament -- I have several shirts which have almost identical measurements, but each fits differently. In fact, I have two shirts purchased at the same time from the same manufacturer in the same size. One shirt fits much looser than the other, yet their measurements are identical.

    So, the only thing I can conclude is that the fabric of a shirt factors into how a shirt fits. Is this correct? If so, how can one specify measurements for an MTM shirt and expect the correct fit if the fit is dependent on the fabric?

    So the consensus is on the first shirt go with measurements from a well fitting shirt you own? Should I go exact or add a bit to account for shrinkage?

    Also, can someone explain to me fused vs unfused collars? I'm having trouble grasping the intricacies of the differences and the advantages of either method.

    Finally, what do i do for the wide spread collars that are button down? Just note that in my custom options?

    I'm looking for a shirt in a fabric similar to these, but you don't seem to sell a pink twill like that:

    Is there any way you could offer something like these in the near future? Thanks in advance!

    Luxire offers fabrics from several mills.
    Swatches are $1/piece.
    Nobody is able to judge whether or not you will like a shirting like yourself.
    Order some swatches, feel and decide yourself, it's as easy as that.

    Would likely depend on which fabric since they source so many.

    Hello,Luxire.

    Is it possible to make a patchwork shirt with leather elbow patches. Perhaps from scrap pieces of fabric left over?

    We do have some patchwork styles fabric in stock, as below. We can add leather elbow patches to them.

    We can also make shirt using small patches of fabrics.

    What about making shorts out of the chino pant materials? That something you guys could accommodate?

    Certainly. You can place the order like you would for a pant, with the inseam and length being shorter and any other specific styling and measurement requests going to the notes.

    Someone sent us this video link today about our style of never saying no. We kind of agree :)
